#MH17: Rescue workers recovering body from scene of ‘crashed’ Malaysian airline

Rescue workers are now recovering bodies from the scene where a Malaysian airliner carrying 295 people crashed in east Ukraine on a flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.

This, amid allegations it was shot down.

There are no signs of survivors at the scene of the crash near the village of Grabovo, which is under the control of separatist rebels.

Flight MH-17 had been due to enter Russian airspace when contact was lost.

Ukraine’s president called the loss of the plane an “act of terrorism” as the rebels denied shooting it down.

Separatists are believed to have shot down two Ukrainian military planes over the region in recent days.

Among the passengers were French, British and American nationals.

Leading airlines have announced they’re now avoiding eastern Ukraine.
